WATCH: Jim Carrey is back on the big screen in a dark new role


 

Cape Town - In his first big screen movie since 2014 Jim Carrey returns as a troubled policeman.

In Dark Crimes Carrey plays police officer named Tadek, who finds similarities between an unsolved murder and a crime outlined in a book by famed writer Krystov Kozlow (Martin Csokas). 

As Tadek begins to track Kozlow and his girlfriend, a mysterious sex club worker (Charlotte Gainsbourg), his obsession grows and he descends into an underworld of sex, lies, and corruption to find the shocking truth.

According to ComingSoon the screenplay was inspired by an article that detailed a homicide investigation of the death of a businessman and a novelist's involvement.
